In brief: No

It also has a strong "anti cholinergic" profile. This may lead to a faster heart rate, higher blood pressure, dry mouth, blurred vision, and urine retention. None of these are helpful in the treatment of hemochromatosis.

In brief: Possible but ?

I am not aware of any reason to prescribe Phentermine for hemochromatosis.
I do not know of a relationship of disease of iron overload to a diet pill. I would categorically state that one should not be taking this medication for hemochromatosis. It is indicated for certain obesity states.
